    They're channeling their inner hedgehog.

    Gotta go fast

    Though really I don't see any clear reason for it, besides the aforementioned laziness. It's basically why I tend to solo more often than not, save for doing the occasional void run with clannies. Why bother getting into a group if everyone's going to try their hardest to rush ahead and kill everything before their teammates can see it?

    And yeah, I think most people are running it solely to get credit on the Invasion. Conveniently, this does mean that Nyx is pretty easy to get even with bad gear, even if on the rare occasions you are super slow you might miss the mod/resource drop.

    Yeah, Phorid the boss, not Phobos the planet(oid).

    ...but if they just want invasion credit, why don't they just solo? They get all the fun of speed running it that they're doing right now, but without have to wait at end, deal with d/c's or host migration, and something in RL comes up, they even get the ability to pause the game!!

    There is something ironically sad about you going solo most of the time to avoid being grouped with people who basically try to solo the mission despite being in a group.

    EDIT: I guess I should mention that while it was my time farming Phorid that brought it up, I'm kinda talking about assassination missions in general. I just want to know if there is a legitimate reason for such people to do that before I unilaterally label them all as assholes silly geese.

    I find it amusing most of my randomized color schemes end up mostly pink, darn valentine pallette... My consolation is that vast numbers of grenier have been offed by armor that looks like a reject from the old power puff girls cartoon.

    Argh, I hate that stupid Grinner tileset Defense map with the central core and nothing surrounding it. Constantly keep getting warped away by Commanders straight into a pack and then having to run back while the core's taking damage. Doing these alerts late solo sucks.

    The big core is also annoying because the spawns are not bottlenecked unless you get them right at the spawns. And also it's so big, you can not notice things spawning on the other side.

    Yeah, if I'm solo, for the last 5-7 waves I generally have to leave one Lancer up at the end of the wave and run him around to let the core regen. With not being able to get to energy drops mid-wave due to killing the incoming spawns far away at the bottleneck, the core usually drops from, say, 5k to <3k health before I've cleaned everything out.

    And I also may just flat out die at least once from Commander teleport incapacitation or chip status effect damage (or eating a Bombard rocket at the wrong time or something, that's happened).

    I just use a Nova with a soma for tackling that map solo - the soma can ventilate an entire spawn if you catch them coming through a door or lined up running at the reactor, although having to kite around that last dumbass to give the reactor time to regen is a pain. When a wave started, I was generally able to kill two spawns on the move, and then start priming the rest as they reached the middle.

    That's the setup I was doing, I just kept getting shot in the back by the spawns that happened late in each wave once things aren't so nice and pat. Or sometimes there's a Commander in a wave coming out the closest door and he grabs me and screws the whole thing.

    I feel your pain. I managed to solo the first one (which luckily was the ventilation map), but I don't think I would have a chance protection a big reactor.

    The point of running groups is to see who can be the fastest to kill everything. If you're not at the head of the pack you need to be faster.

    So... I'm a lurker. Actually my first post I've ever made. I play Warframe. Can I get an invite? (PC gamer) (Also: SolinEldin) (Yeah, I know. I use it alot actually.)

    @Solin.Eldin, I tried to invite you but you're either already in a clan or have a pending invite. Go to your clan tab and cancel that, and let me know when you've done it - then I'll send you another invite! :)

    Is anyone else still waiting for an invite? I haven't been as on the ball with it as usual in the last week or so.

    PC Warframers! The dojo needs your generous donations of Ferrite and Circuits so we can build more corridors to build more reactors so we're ready to build the new labs and rooms when they come out. Unfortunately the basically only place for new stuff is way in the back of the basement, so you're gonna have to go down there, and put what you can spare in those new construction projects. I've already footed the rest of the bill including the Formas - I want to get this dojo ready for Update 13 as fast as possible! :)

    Ok, I just took care of all the ferrite, still need like 7k circuits for the other room though.

    Same. Looks like everything is building. I noticed that there was an open crossconnector building on the main floor. Can we keep the end of that crossconnector open so that we can just keep adding labs (and stuff like that) to a more corridor-like structure?
    Same for the basement really, creating a basement "Reactor corridor" instead of placing them at random locations throughout the structure.

    Question: Should we clear out a room on the main floor to make more cross connectors up by the existing labs so we can have new labs close to the old labs?

    That is the plan. Don't worry, I've got this. :D Have you seen the livestream? At the very least we're getting an Orokin lab and an observation deck, the former of which is needed for the new clan competition stuff, solar rails and so on. I was planning to expand it on that side. If possible, do not destroy any of the old-style rooms, because once they're gone, they're lost forever. So... from the spawn hall, we'll have the traditional side with the labs, and the other side which will have more modern corridors and the new labs and rooms.

    There's a double potato alert up now, since Warframe won the MMOBomb voting contest.

    Also, quick question, anyone know if aborting a mission consumes your death mark? Had the G3 pop up when I was soloing, and I immediately "NOPE'd" since it was a no-shields nightmare mission, and I had no energy to go invisible.
